Description

Excitement is growing as Bellingen Youth Orchestra prepares for its 10th Year Anniversary Celebrations.

For the 10th Anniversary Celebratory concert, BYO Artisitic Director, Annie Phelan has selected a program of works including Rimsky Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol, and a selection of music from past and present BYO repertoire.

BYO Patrons, David and Gillian Helfgott, have volunteered their time and energy into joining in the celebrations. David has been both an inspiration and a great mentor to BYO over the ten years and he is absolutely bursting with enthusiasm to play with the orchestra again. It is a partnership which has brought great joy to all involved, including the audiences that have supported the BYO’s growth and development over the past 10 years.

Alumni of the BYO joining BYO for this concert include Suzanne Sherrington, Esther Henderson, Lachlan Wilkins, Blake Cutler, Natasha Dyason, and Liam Mallinson. Also re-joining BYO for this concert will be many past BYO players, swelling the size of the BYO to incorporate more than 90 musicians!

Written by Rimsky Korsakov in 1887, Capriccio Espagnol,Op.34, was originally envisioned as a violin concerto (hence the prominent role of violin solos, especially in the fourth movement). As it took shape, the Capriccio came to include many soloistic passages for other instruments as well: the musical term “capriccio” connotes images of virtuosity and fantasy.

Capriccio espagnol is written as five linked movements, each one based on Spanish themes. (The vogue for Spanish music started in Russia in the 1840s, after Mikhail Glinka returned home from a two-year stay in Spain.) The score begins with an alborada, which comes back in the middle and returns at the very end, complete with castanets, to ensure a picture- postcard finale.

There will be two concerts on Saturday 9th December - a matinee at 2pm and an evening concert at 7pm. To avoid disappointment, BYO advise the pre-purchase of tickets. Tickets available online at Eventbrite and at Waterfall Way Visitor Centre in Bellingen. Tickets at the door - Subject to availability!
